New proposals could see the station staffed for part of the day, while drop-off facilities, roads and CCTV systems are improved.

It comes as the station awaits the construction of a major new car park on Valley Road.

Coun Neil Dawson (Lab, Morley South) said: “This will be the step change needed to improve the station.”
